Re: what are you doing while at home?

Nice Espada .

I’d have one of those if it wasn’t for the fear of the maintenance bills.

Re: Matt's 1970 'Trans-Am' Cuda

Nice video. I researched that 'Cuda for a bit whilst planning mine. It runs an iron 465ci hemi and a Dana. That's one heavy car. Nice build though. Feature at: https://themotorhood.com/themotorhood/2015/8/14/uwx2sq8jvjfyu0adw8lpnjsrtolmak I considered the colour (Chrysler Patriot Blue) for mine but ...

Re: Matt's 1970 'Trans-Am' Cuda

Yes it's got Avon CR6-ZZ tyres back on it at the moment, as I wore out the Hoosiers and didn't notice till last Thursday . Over-inflating them by about 5 psi didn't help. The Avons are basically a treaded road-legal tyre, so are costing me a fair amount of corner speed, but the cornering balance is ...

Still lots to do both mechanically on the car , and with improving my driving. But having lots of fun in ...

Re: Rob's 70 Charger

Standard heater matrixes are available from Rockauto. Com and are an acceptable fit . If you have aircon the heater matrix is different and it may be easiest to have a local specialist re-core your existing one

Re: Matt's '68 Coronet 500

Been doing a bit more on the car . So having remembered that I'd 'borrowed' the power-to-manual steering column adaptor from the Coronet to use on the 'Cuda, I had a bit more work to do. Martin at RPM found me a pot coupler with the larger 'manual' spline in it , so just needed to get the correct le...

Re: Parts wanted for Challenger Trans Am replica

Yes that’s part of the plan . Various CSCC classes don’t allow non-homologated spoilers. Since the ‘cuda is a pretty faithful copy of the real one, I don’t much like altering the look. ie removing the spoiler . Thought i’d try and solve that particular first-world dilemma if building a second car !

Re: Parts wanted for Challenger Trans Am replica

I know the car was going to be a Green #76/#77 replica , but having seen these pics I can feel a slight change of direction coming on !

Re: Matt's '68 Coronet 500
